  1. Both logos are extremely generic. The new one that they are apparently considering is just cleaner compared to the unnecessary drop shadows, so it's slightly better IMO. As messy as this logo is, at least it has some distinguishing features to give them a bit more of an identity, compared to just a circle and a wordmark.
  2. ^it'll be interesting to see if teams start wearing colors that don't even "belong" to them once they run out of ideas. like inspired by throwback jerseys or defunct teams. idk how i'd feel about it, it'd almost be like "clash" uniforms in soccer, where the team ends up wearing a completely random color that isn't found in their home color palette.
  3. Maybe they are phasing these in, then they are going to phase out the current primary logo? The hyper detailing reminds me of the evolution the Jacksonville Jaguars went through, although personally i prefer the less anatomically correct and more whimsical 90s logos of both the Jags and Sharks I kind of like the partial head logo, though. it gives a nod to the "shark tooth" triangular shape while also subtly working in an "S" at the bottom. pretty nice.
  4. I think the thrashers will go down in nhl lore as a team who got it right the first time (even the original "true blue" uniform was a good/unique look for them) who then finished their short existence with some of the worst uniforms to ever grace in the league. those red alternates... need I say more? The piping and weird RBK template (the flyers had the same template briefly) on their white edge uniforms were AWFUL and I mean awful. The cherry on top was that the "true blue" uniform was completely ruined by the terrible reebok templating (that the Avs sadly still use) and worst of all, the red/white piping on the shoulders and under-arm design was inexplicably reversed from: white separating the dark blue and red --> red separating the white and dark blue. it's a bad little detail that not everyone picks up on, I don't think. Those dark blue uniforms above tho... Beauts. That's one of my favorite jerseys that I own. Good color balance throughout that full uniform set, with the slightly touch of light blue on the simple "T" logo, and then white is only found on the numbers, further emphasizing that the yellow looks pretty nice separating the red and blue. Love that color balance
  5. Did anyone post this a little while back? apologies if so. rumor around these parts is that Kirby Smart is going to be much more open minded when it comes to wearing alternate uniforms compared to Richt. UGA hasn't worn black uniforms since getting destroyed by Alabama I want to sayyyyy ... 8 years ago. before then, we beat auburn in a blackout game and also beat Hawaii in the sugar bowl wearing black. Recruits appear to be told that they are going to be a more regular part of the set. I wouldnt be surprised seeing these one or two times this year, potentially against Tennessee in possibly the dawgs biggest home game this season.
  6. Yes agreed, always considered the Leafs socks to be in iconic / quirky category like the Bruins socks. Shame to see them go. I see why they did it though. It creates more harmony in the uniform when you compare socks to the arm striping and then look at the hem stripe / pants stripe as the other design element. If you go with the old socks, the arm striping doesn't match with anything else and youre starting to reach Penguins Home level of mismatching pieces.
  7. Watching the Dodgers Pirates game and I'm seeing that the Pirates alternate throwback uniform (amazing uniform, by the way) uses virtually an identical striping pattern as the now full-time Penguins throwback uniforms.. ....Paying attention specifically to the way that the black-white-yellow stripe separates areas of yellow and black Maybe that has been recently mentioned in this thread, so sorry if it has, but can you guys think of another city like this? personally i cant, obviously we all know the Pittsburgh teams are aligned color wise (of course cities like New York with the Mets and Knicks have the same color scheme)..... but now two of the teams use virtually identical striping elements.
  8. I'd be on board with this as just a subtle fix... but it's a really nice improvement. The white numbers also separate them more from the Bruins. My least favorite part of the Pens current black uniforms are the sock striping that they use, so this also helps that little issue.
  9. Just promote the London Knights to the NHL then, already have the color palette and proper name, and they are probably just as good as any expansion draft squad that Vegas can put together
  10. Nice... Well at least the hem stripe on the away unis will match the stripes on the arms. The hem stripe on the black version of these uniforms still doesn't really match properly.
  11. Agree. Some total overreactions around these parts. The jersey is a bit of a downgrade. Logo is a bit of an upgrade. Tampa needs to go back to black/blue scheme.
  12. maybe they will give an explanation tomorrow on why the hem stripe doesn't match the arm stripes. it doesn't really make very much sense looking at it initially, maybe they have a reason for it. I don't know. it's strange. they aren't that bad, and i'd think they were pretty good even, that is, if the Lightning uniforms didn't exist. Hem stripes of the two teams are now virtually identical. The renderings above will also look way better with numbers on the arms and the accompanying socks, though.
  13. It makes a lot of sense but sadly doesn't look like they are going in that direction. The other option: instead of being the black-white-yellow team (which i agree, they should be, it even mimics the coloring of a Penguin), they are the yellow-black-white team. Unfortunatley, the Preds have kind of cemented themselves as the yellow team. I wish sometimes that teams could still wear yellow uniforms as their light colored uni, like the Lakers and like how the Kings did in the NHL back in the day. Or, at least let the pens wear yellow helmets on the road, like they did in the 80s (i think?). Like in this picture below. Would be fun inconsistency they could own, as mentioned above. Shameless plug: my concept for the Pens from years ago features a similar design as the Crosby photoshop from the page prior to this. Try to ignore the crazy logo and weird pinstripes if you can, there are some things about this concept I'd change looking at it now, but it's always fun to experiment. https://www.behance.net/gallery/19711063/NHL-Concept-Pittsburgh-Penguins
  14. I tend to agree-- the Canadians and Blackhawks (and even Leafs with their sock striping) have weird inconsistencies that give their uniforms charm. The bruins too, with the yellow socks. However, there is a line between small inconsistencies and maybe being a little TOO crazy. The penguins could at least get 2/3 of the Arms, Waist, and Socks to match. Then you throw in the yellow outlined in white on the numbers and the pants-- maybe it's too inconsistent? Don't get me wrong, I love the Penguins throwbacks, especially the patches of yellow on the arms and the way the black shoulders kind of creep in to those yellow panels like the Red Wings sleeves..... but all of the different patterns they use kind of mess with my head after a while of watching them on the ice.
  15. ^ This would be a great step in the right direction for the Penguins identity. I think the real key for them: how do they use the black and yellow-gold (not khaki) without being too close to the Bruins. The good thing about the throwback direction they are going: the yellow sleeves and black socks, compared to the Bruins' yellow shoulders and yellow socks, make them visually separated... The bad thing: As you can see, the yellow-black-white-black-yellow stripes that the Bruins kind of "own" is the same exact stripe on the Penguins throwback socks. Penguins should change the socks to match the waist stripe. However I really love that recolored sidney crosby image above. Looks nothing like the Bruins. It's worth noting that the primarily yellow sleeves of the road uniform the Pens will most likely adopt next season are pretty different than the more black-heavy Bruins white sweaters.
